Song Intro

Janan: Dad, you're always eating the big sandwich, the triple cheeseburger, the super  hoagie, the foot long cheese dog, with super sized fries.  Come on, Daddy, do you know how many grams of fat that is?  That's about 300 grams of fat, man.! 

You see Dad; we don't want you to get sick.  You know granddaddy died of a heart attack, and grandma had high blood pressure.  That's why you've got to stay low - You got to change some things

Verse 1

Contrary to popular opinion we all can use a little oil and fat.   A healthy diet needs essential fatty acids, and a major source of vitamin E is fat.  But the problem is not too little, but too much of the wrong kind of fat.  So educate yourselfHere is something you need to know - You've got to stay low. 

Verse 2

The first step to controlling fat, is knowing where it's at.  Some fat is easy to see and some fat's in food invisibly.  You got to make yourself aware.  Check the label and don't be scared.  You can't stop - If you don't know

Breakdown A

The Food Label is mandated law.  So learn it, and then use it.  You don't need more than 65 grams of fat per day.  So add them up on a per serving basis.
What's your fat total today?

Breakdown B

Know you pyramid.  Try to get the proper amount of nutrients from the food you consume, by eating more fruits, grains and vegetables.  And keep your protein lean and your dairy low fat.  And don't forget to drink water, rest and exercise.  Stay low man, that's where it's at
